[TxMt] Objective-C completion vs Bracket Matching

Joachim et al,

There is one minor (but annoying) detail about the combination of  
Objective-C completion and Bracket Matching. I have come to rely on  
Bracket Matching quite heavily, but that frequently leads to  
situations like this:

	NSFileManager	*fileManager=[NSFileManager defaultManager];
	if(fileManager fileEx|

At this point completion (Alt-Esc) will not do anything because there  
is no opening bracket before 'fileManager'. So the only way is to type  
the closing bracket (which inserts the opening bracket), back-arrow,  
and then Alt-Esc, and later having to skip over the closing bracket.

Not really a big deal, and I suspect it would be difficult to  
implement, but in a perfect world I would hope code completion at the  
above situation would insert the brackets along with a snippet that  
lets me tab to any arguments and eventually past the closing bracket.
